O Supermacho

Elaine Ramos

“Making love is a meaningless act, that can be repeated indefinitely” is the opening sentence of this provoking romance. The image of the machine and the search for unlimited occupy the central paper in the script. The repetition and the beginning of the 20th century’s vanguards’ references are inspiring elements for the typography as well as for the illustrations, done by Andrés Sandoval from stamps.
